I imagine it is houstonianum. Thicker cordate leaves and longer hairs especially on involucre bracts are clearly seen.

Good evening Sir. Thank you for the ID. No Bengali name has been given to A. houstonianum in the 'Plants Groups', the book that i consult first to obtain any initial ID.
Regards,
Surajit
